Joe Wilkins

"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea

Review of Far Enough

IMG_5872 IMG_5873A big thanks to Scott McMillion, Craig Lancaster, and, especially, Elise Atchison for a wonderful review of Far Enough in The Montana Quarterly. And it feels pretty good to be following Tom McGuane in the book review section as well!

Here’s a bit from the end of the review:

Wilkins writes about rural Montana with the same brilliance and precision as Ivan Doig or Wallace Stegner. His lyrical descriptions and evocative imagery make for a jaw-droppingly beautiful book. There is a mysterious alchemy that takes place when beautiful language is mixed with the dust and blood of hardscrabble lives. In Far Enough we are left with pure gold.
